Volunteer with AARP Foundation Tax-Aide

Get Back to Giving Back

Giving back feels good. Especially when it’s for a cause as worthwhile and rewarding as AARP Foundation Tax-Aide.

We’re looking for volunteers who want to make a difference by directly helping people who can’t afford to pay for professional tax preparation — and often miss out on much-needed tax breaks and refunds as a result.

You don’t have to be a tax pro to volunteer with us. Whether you’re looking to stay sharp during retirement, learn new career skills, or simply share your talents with your community, there are many ways you can help.

Join our team and help your neighbors get the credits and deductions they deserve. Whatever your skill set, there’s a role for you.
